MP68 price drop?

5 posts in this topic

I love my MP68, and I don't want the new MP69 ...

Is there a way I can buy it cheap now? I can't spend another $600 on it and hopefully the price

will drop even further?

Sure prices will drop, but will it be much, I can imagine many will like the MP-68 more than the MP-69 ........ MP-69 is marketing only, maybe Mizuno hopes that a certain group of potential buyers will buy these for the sexy name only .......

I like my MP-67 ....... maybe I will also buy a nice MP-68 if I bump into these at a fair price.......

Prices in stores might not be reduced by more than $100 but you should see the used prices drop significantly as more people upgrade and decide to sell their older models.

I rarely see prices for Mizuno clubs drop when a new line of irons come out.  For what ever reason they don't seem to make sharp discounts like the other OEM's.  My first set of Mizuno irons were the T-Zoid, when they came out with the T-Zoid Pro I was expecting a price drop on the T-Zoid but never saw it.

When I bought my second set, I debated between the MP62 and MP67, finally went with the MP62.  Just last year I was getting a set of MP68, I actually found two different stores that still had new sets of MP67 but they were at the orginal price, so I went with the MP68.

I spoke to the owner of a local golf store yesterday that's an authorized Mizuno and Titleist dealer.  He said both companies keep strict control over the pricing - even on older models.  He said he wouldn't expect to get clearance to drop the price more than $100 for at least six months.

He said some dealers play games and will use a few clubs in a set as demo clubs and then sell them at a discount as used clubs but they could lose their authorized status if they get caught doing it too often.
